Escaping the Dental Insurance Dictatorship: Embrace Transparent Dental Membership Plans
Dental insurance should not feel like an intrusive presence in your healthcare decisions. So why does it often feel that way? Let’s break it down with an analogy.
Have you ever encountered a micromanaging coworker who just couldn’t resist meddling in your projects? Meet Jim, an employee of a large organization, and Mr. Dicta, the micromanager extraordinaire. Jim’s story serves as a compelling analogy for the dental insurance industry’s intrusive presence in your healthcare decisions.
Jim vs. Mr. Dicta
In the corporate world, Jim found himself tasked with a solo project by the CEO. He’s given creative freedom, a flexible budget, and a reasonable timeline. With a clear vision, defined goals, and a well-thought-out plan, Jim got to work.
Enter Mr. Dicta, a newly hired consultant with no knowledge of the corporation’s inner workings. His biggest concern was his paycheck, and he was eager to prove his worth by establishing authority.
Mr. Dicta second-guessed Jim’s decisions, interrupted him during meetings, and effectively derailed the project. Rather than collaborate with Jim and learn how to best support the team, Mr. Dicta chose to scrutinize, obstruct, and sabotage.
Patient vs. Dental Insurance
In the dental world, insurance companies often play the role of Mr. Dicta. They act as third-party intermediaries who frequently interfere in patients’ treatment plans. These companies build coverage plans and adjust them with little regard for patient’s standard healthcare needs.
Their profit-driven incentives can lead to more denied claims, downgrades in treatment quality, and lower yearly limits for essential dental procedures. A patient may expect to get a tooth-colored crown or filling, then the insurance decides they will only cover a silver crown or silver filling, leaving the patient with the responsibility of covering the difference. That same patient or the dentist’s team may find themselves consistently waiting 40 minutes on hold, struggling to get answers from insurance representatives.
Worst of all, the insurance company creates friction between the dentist and the patient. The dental team provides patients with an estimate of what their insurance should cover, but the insurance company can arbitrarily refuse payment, leaving patients responsible for the remaining balance.
This leaves understandably frustrated patients, and often unnecessary blame is placed on the dentist and their staff.
